For most situations, the information in this gold block is all that is needed to understand the difference between living in a strata and living in your own home.
We recommend Owners and Residents of Creekside who are not familiar with the Strata Property Act and strata living, start with the Provincial website - Living in a Strata - the following subsections are an excellent overview
Strata Legislation Applies to All Stratas
Stratas: More Than Condos
Stratas are Self-Governed
Strata Bylaws and Rules
Strata Fees

We are all members of the Condominium Home Owner's Association, (CHOA). We recommend all owners contact CHOA and search the CHOA website to improve our collective knowledge of strata living and the British Columbia Strata Property Act
The information on strata housing is provided for the user’s convenience as a basic starting point; it is not a substitute for getting legal advice.

The following section “
Purpose of the Strata Housing Website” provides basic information on parts of the Strata Property Act.

The Strata Property Act

For those owners who want to spend a tantalizing afternoon, I recommend a trip to the Strata Property Act web site.

There are 17 Parts to the act. In a sense there is an 18th section.

The Schedule of Standard Bylaws is an accumulation of relevant sections from the 17 parts of the Strata Property Act that focus on Strata Governance by the Strata Corporation.

The Schedule of Standard Bylaws must be part of the Bylaws of all Strata Complexes in the Province.

The following are links to the contents of the Strata Property Act.
Contents 
Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4 | Part 5 | Part 6 | Part 7 | Part 8 |
Part 9 | Part 10 | Part 11 | Part 12 | Part 13 | Part 14 |
Part 15 | Part 16 | Part 17 | Schedule of Standard Bylaws

Our Creekside LMS 3764 Strata Corporation, may adopt bylaws to meet unique conditions.
All Creekside LMS 3764 approved Bylaws must be checked by a lawyer to ensure compliance with The Strata Property Act and then registered.
